sea level - don't let the bastards grind you down.
sea level
so this is weird: http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a5_046.html

i mean...the pacific is, on average, 8 inches higher than the atlantic. now, that kinda tickles me in the first place..

but at the panama canal, the tidal difference is 20 ft vs. 1 ft!!! man, that's a big change for only being seperated by a hundred or so miles. And the interesting thing is that the marine life on each side of panama, again, seperated by only a hundred or so miles, is completely different!
